I like the update - hopefully this gets done (particularly on vinyl!)

If any of you have pledged already write in the tracklisting comments that on Disc #6 they mispelled You're Such a Wire.

You cant expect every last morsel to be on a box Set,
But I would have liked to see (Coming into Los Angeles - Malmo 2001) on there.

Maybe they never did "Coming Into Los Angeles" in the studio.

Anyway, I think this is cool news. Box set coming out March 2015. I'm there. Will order after the holidays.

This is what I have been waiting for. I pre-ordered this morning and I can't wait. The Catholics era is one of his most consistent and prolific. Oh how do I miss those Catholic years. If they tour they should do nothing but Catholics era material.

Blizzard 1989! A THIRD Humboldt! Selkie Bride! The Shrimp song! And 2 versions of 1826!! Man I need this so bad.

On the downside, no live songs indeed. And most important: why is there only one version of His Kingly Cave and I'll Be Blue? That's nonsense!

I am most excited about the versions of Selkie Bride and Western Star. I didn't realize that Selkie Bride was a Catholics song first. That will be great to hear.

This is great news!!

However I would like to have seen the cover of Kinks' This Time Tomorrow one there, I thought there was a recording made of that?

Maybe/hopefully there could be some downloads available on the side, for live sessions, etc?

that's quite far away. more than three months.

what are the pledgemusic "exclusives" going to be, for those who pre-order now?
will they try to keep it alive for three months, with updates and a little download every now and then?

How about a 24bit 192khz .flac download, so I can listen to something other than one Neil Young track on my PONO?

Man, when you start reading the song list, it is truly impressive as a "body of work". Holy cow. Really looking forward to these unreleased tracks. A "Surf Version" of The Black Rider sounds very interesting.

Methinks the "surf version" of "Black Rider" is simply just the final track on Black Letter Days.

Could be overly optimistic, but the way he spoke the phrase "on cd" during the video -- as if to differentiate this project from other future formats -- leads me to believe a vinyl release may yet happen.

The price of the cd boxset does put perspective on a vinyl issue...which wouldn't be cheap.

I just realized they only have one version of Le Cigare Volant on the box set, which I assume is the Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day version. I actually prefer the version that was on the Japanese version of Dog in the Sand and on One More Road for the Hit, but I wonder if that is considered a demo?

It took YEARS and outside help from Pledge Music and Cooking Vinyl to get the CD box set together. I strongly suggest not getting your hopes up too high for a vinyl edition. A more likely scenario: vinyl reissues of the original albums... eventually.

On a vinyl release:
Piece for piece (and please correct me if my math is off)
Doolittle 3x vinyl - $35 / 11.60@
FB&Cs 7x CD - $90 / 12.86@

Granted lots of resources went into compiling and remastering the FB&Cs material. Personally I'll have to wallet-vote this and await a vinyl release to justify the price. Also train sets for kids don't come cheap round Christmastime. And that's an easy choice.

Oh yeah - you're right, Jason, it must be that one... I didn't think of it as a "Surf version" but it has to be. Oh well. Looking forward to all the other unreleased tracks, then. My mistake.

On top of the manufacturing costs is also the shipping costs. A vinyl release of the Catholics box set would be at least ten records, a big, fat heavy package that might also require a sturdy case to hold them all (which adds to the manufacturing costs, natch). I don't see it being priced less than $250, with my best guess being $300.

There's one scenario where the Catholics vinyl box set might happen: They do it in an EXTREMELY limited pressing. 100 copies, say. The profit from it would be minor, which means it requires someone on the inside who's simply very passionate about getting this onto vinyl and willing to possibly lose money on it.

Meanwhile, Frank himself seems 100% indifferent to what format his music appears on. Most of his albums aren't even on vinyl.

So, I'd say it's not looking good.

As I said above, the best bet is to see the original albums get reissued. Frank does own them and has his own label, which is interested enough in reissuing his back catalog that they put out Oddballs awhile back. But they work slowly. This, I imagine, is a part-time thing for everyone involved. Fair enough. Meanwhile, the music itself is already out there if you want it.

PS: I'm a vinyl collector, but I honestly don't think I would shell out $300 for a vinyl box set. The $90 CD set though, sure. Just to pay tribute to a band I love and to dig into the packaging. That's just me, though.

Having similar thoughts on this one. Just got the Doolittle 25 and am loving that. Not sure I can justify buying the box set. I have my favourite FB+C's on vinyl already as it is (albeit no BLD or DW)

Very interested to hear True Blue though, very cool.

Also I love blizzard 1989, was hoping that would get a release.

As a long-suffering fan who waited years to see this release finally happen, I want to make a celebratory offer to those on this thread. In 2009 I ordered a signed COR poster from the Bureau. It arrived with a note explaining that, while packing the order, theyíd noticed the COR poster had some undisclosed water damage (it was actually very minimal), and to make up for it they added extra items: a poster of the Bluefinger album cover and two duplicate posters of the Catholicsí debut album cover, all of which were signed.

I donít need the extra debut album poster and Iím not looking to make money from selling it. I like the idea of it going to a fan, and God knows anyone hanging out on page 9 of a multi-year thread about a box set for which most (if not all) of us already have the albums therein -- and probably all sorts of other marginalia acquired from loving this man's music -- can have said poster for free.

Iíll even ship for free, provided the recipient pay the karma forward to somebody, somehow, someday.

Iíll give any takers until Friday, December 19 Ė just state in the thread if you want it Ė and if there be lots of posters interested Iíll stir all parties in a bowl and draw out a winning handle. Iíll ship it out the next day, Saturday, December 20.

Over the years, Iíve lurked on this site more than Iíve posted and Iíll just be a goober and say how much Iíve always enjoyed coming here. Itís nice to see a thread active again.

Hi bernerdawg: I love that album cover/poster! I would definitely love having it and look after it if there are no other interested parties...
